Hypatima rhomboidella

(Linnaeus, 1758)


Wingspan 18 mm.

The scientific name of this moth is derived from the rhomboid-shaped brownish blotch on the forewing.

At rest, the wings are closely folded at the tip, giving a tapered appearance.

It flies at night between late July and September, and can be attracted by light.

The larval foodplants are birch (Betula) and hazel (Corylus avellana).
